US President Bush gets booted in Iraq
The visit of US President George W. Bush to Iraq witnessed an ugly incident while he was addressing a press conference. A journalist, Muntadar al-Zeidi of Al-Baghdadia Television, an Iraqi-owned station based in Cairo, Egypt, removed both his shoes and hurled them at President Bush shouting “This is your farewell kiss, you dog!”
President Bush ducked twice to avoid the boots striking his face.He called this incident “a bizarre moment.”
Bush visited the Iraqi capital to highlight a drop in violence and to celebrate a recent U.S.-Iraq security agreement, which calls for U.S. troops to withdraw from Iraq by the end of 2011.
Bush later traveled to Afghanistan where he spoke to U.S. soldiers and Marines.
